Wow.. Maro, Billy and Wiggy straight back in. I thought they might come off the bench.

Great news with the champions cup around the corner and from an England perspective as well.

Honourable mention for Wiggy, who makes his 200th Appearance for Sarries, and if we progress though to the end of the year and into the playoffs could be in line for being the most capped premiership player of all time. (needs 12 more to overtake Borthwick)

And Britsy of course.
It's the first time in a while that we have been able to rest a decent number of players purely out of choice rather than necessity; notably Marcello Bosch, Calum Clark and George Kruis.

I just hope the 16th man, a Mr A. Correct-Attitude also makes an appearance and we win this one.

The team is as strong as we can muster given resting Callum, Kruis and Cello.

Go well boys...

What a game to make your comeback, just in time for the must-win ERC games!

That's a pretty strong line up or both teams! Definitely not doing anything at 3pm on Sunday! Looking forward to this, so glad that Billy and Maro are starting and and not coming from the bench, if all stay fit then next week a similar line up but maybe including Clark and Kruis and Bosch ! Come on you Sarries!

Erm so we're taking this seriously then? ... smiling smiley

Wow. That's a great 23 and there's some rotation too. Fabulous to see Billy back and also Taylor at 13 and Earle on the wing. Big game for Tolfua to start in.

About as excited as I've been all season to see what the team can do against a very good Wasps team.

COYS!!

Wasps have quite a few missing as they are reminding us on their board!!
Iím just pleased after a season & half of some bad injuries to our players (including retirees) we are finally getting back to near normality!

What a massive fixture this is - hate to hang a season on one game but win well & injury free and it's some turnaround with perfect timing too. COYS (Sm53)

W*sps seem to be 'rotating' a few. Perhaps they are still chasing a European QF spot!

Not really rotating, that is who is left.

The modern game as it is, timing is everything.

Apparently he has a snotty nose (heavy cold).

Nose must be even more snotty now!

"There is a late change to our bench today, where Joe Launchbury has failed to recover from his illness in time to take his place against Saracens. Will Rowlands comes in."

From Wasps official Twitter.

Rowlands has impressed me when he's played but that's a big loss for Wasps.
